Craig Calfee: Rear suspension will revolutionize road-race cycling
Suspension has long been a dirty word among road-racing cyclists, but if carbon fiber wizard and cycling visionary Craig Calfee nails his latest prediction as cleanly as his previous ones, it won't be long before every rider in the Tour de France is enjoying the comfort, performance and traction benefits of a suspended rear end. Calfee's top-of-the-line Manta bikes now feature an incredibly simple, lightweight rear suspension spring with a tiny 12 mm of travel that he believes will revolutionize the sport. Gizmag visited the Calfee workshop in Santa Cruz to find out more.

Gravitational waves detected, providing the final piece of the puzzle for general relativity
Scientists in the US have today announced what could be the biggest breakthrough in physics in a hundred years. Specifically, they claim to have at last detected gravitational waves, the enigmatic and elusive ripples in the fabric of spacetime that Albert Einstein first predicted in 1916, in his theory of general relativity.

Review: Ultimaker 2 Extended 3D printer
In a crowded field, the Ultimaker 2 Extended is one of the highest resolution desktop 3D printers available. Its larger footprint means it can also print larger, more complex projects than many of its brethren. Gizmag tried out this jumbo making machine to size up what it can do.

Reversible fuel cell goes both ways for the US Navy
Boeing has delivered a new type of fuel cell to the US Navy for testing that can both store energy and generate electricity. Called a "reversible solid oxide fuel cell," it's designed to absorb energy from renewable sources, such as wind and solar, then release it as required to provide commercial and military users with a cleaner, more sustainable source of power.

ArcaBoard moves closer to production, and at a lower price
Late last year, we first heard about the hovering ArcaBoard. At the time, people wondered if it really worked as advertised, and whether or not we'd ever hear anything about it again. Well, now its creators have released a new video of it apparently in action, along with an announcement of a lower planned price.

Hands-on with the 3Doodler Start, a 3D pen for kids
So far it's mostly been adults who've had the fun of using 3D pens, which is ironic given how drawing in mid-air can release your inner doodling child. However, the 3Doodler Start is a 3D pen from WobbleWorks designed specifically for kids. It uses a new eco-plastic, features no hot parts, and is compliant with toy safety standards. We recently got to play with one ahead of its launch.

Grass used to make thinner, stronger condoms
So first of all … no, nobody is thinking of weaving together blades of grass to make condoms. Scientists at Australia's University of Queensland, however, are having success with condoms made from a latex with added nanocellulose obtained from a native grass. Not only are they stronger than regular latex condoms, but they could be as thin as the diameter of a human hair.

Amphibious Sherp ATV's big wheels keep on turning, no matter the terrain
When we initially saw the Sherp ATV rolling its way around the Internet, our first thought was that it must be the work of a designer, not a real vehicle. The compact body tucked between ginormous off-road tires just looked too odd to be real. But the Russian vehicle is indeed real and it's one hell of a way to drive over anything short of a sheer cliff face.

Machine-learning robot could streamline drug development
Testing out newly developed drugs is an extremely time-consuming process, and it can be difficult to get right. Now, a team of scientists at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is working to streamline the task, creating a robotically driven experimentation system that's able to reduce the number of tests that have to be carried out by as much as 70 percent.

First ride: Zero launches crazy-quick DSR dual-sport in California
Zero Motorcycles has made evolutionary changes to its silent but deadly 2016 lineup, with improvements to battery chemistry, range, efficiency and heat management. There's also two new models – the FXS supermoto and the DSR (above), a dual sport platform that now features the full splendour of the high-power SR motor and powertrain. Gizmag visited Zero in Santa Cruz, California, to catch up with the team and check out the new toys.

Next-gen football helmet blunts impulse and impact
University of Michigan researchers have entered the race to build a lightweight, more affordable and more effective football helmet, with a system they've called Mitigatium. The design incorporates three different layers that are meant to blunt some dangerous physics that today's helmet designs ignore.

Sentio headphones offer open or closed listening choice
Open-back headphones, where the outer earcups are perforated to allow air and sound to pass freely in and out, can bring a more natural, spacious feel to music listening. But sound leakage is a big drawback – users can hear much of the world around them and anyone nearby can clearly hear sounds coming from the headphones. Closed-back headphones, where the outer cups are solid, offer more isolation, but staging can feel restricted and the listening experience very much in your head. The Sentio headphones from British audio house Rock Jaw combine both headphone designs in one.
